I figure a group of anonymous lesbians can probably help me out here.
I’m pretty sure the stomach problems are directly tied to coffee. And I’ve stopped drinking it and have upped my fiber intake. Fine. After over two weeks, the headaches are finally going away. My stomach stopped hurting.
But I have a bigger problem. It is a huge problem, actually, considering that my job is to educate and care for the well-being of 19 children every day.
I’m a bitch.
I’m a bitch on wheels. I have absolutely NO PATIENCE. (See, I’m yelling already.) I can’t be this way with my job. It is not right. The kids should not be subjected to a psychohosebeast every day while they are just trying to learn.
I tried a little science experiment and took four sips of A’s coffee two days ago. I was nice for one day. But my stomach still hurts a little two days later. I guess I can’t do that. Some friends have recommended trying decaf. But it does have caff in it, so I’m a little nervous. Right now I’m drinking Calming Yogi tea, upon the recommendation of a co-worker.
Do any of you have a non-caff herb or food or something that isn’t an anti-depressant that makes you less bitchy? Chocolate doesn’t count. And I can’t start the day with a glass of wine.
Please share. For the children’s sake.
